another image auction – Icons & Images

Lews W. Hine c1930/1
Derrick and Workers on
the Empire State Bldg
Sale 2466, Lot 63

Toronto. This auction is both sooner and closer. Ms Dalle Kaplan sent me an email to say that Swann Auction Galleries down in New York City are hosting their next Icons & Images auction featuring photographs and photo books.

The auction will be held February 15, 2018 at 104 East 25th Street in the Big Apple. The catalogue is now online at the galleries. The prints have fairly high estimated values, but many are works of art!

As usual, the lots can be viewed in person a few days before the auction. I noticed in addition to this beautiful 1930s print by Lew Hine, and other prints by Hine, a few Edward S Curtis prints of Indians. A local restaurant, Barberian’s, known for great steaks and desserts, once had Curtis photos on the walls as decorations!
